Prof. Isabelle Baraffe
My current fields of interest are in planetary and stellar physics. My main research activities are devoted to the study of giant and terrestrial solar and extra-solar planets, of substellar objects (brown dwarfs) and of a wide variety of stars (from low mass to very massive stars). The aim is to understand and to model the physical processes characteristic of (i) the formation, (ii) the atmospheric and interior structure and (iii) the evolution of substellar (planets, brown dwarfs) and stellar objects.
My expertise covers a wide range of physical conditions, from Earth-like planets to very massive stars and supernovae.
I was awarded several prizes and distinctions:
